UCL Taekwondo is the largest and most successful university Taekwondo club in the UK. Taekwondo is a fantastic opportunity to keep fit, learn self-defence, and most importantly, meet some friendly people! We welcome all abilities from all backgrounds, from complete beginners to black belts, and cater the training sessions to suit everyone.

Description (Edit summary)

At UCL Taekwondo, you will be taught by several experienced black belt and international competitor coaches. We teach both WT and ITf styles. We focus on all major aspects of Taekwondo: Kyorugi (sparring/the sport side of Taekwondo), Poomsae (patterns/the art side of Taekwondo) and self-defence. On top of in person training, we host extra weekly sessions such as our weekly run club and yoga/ pilates. You also have the opportunity to enter up to 3 competitions and 3 gradings per year, providing plenty of opportunity for progression and development. We have had fantastic competition success as we are the first official BUCS champions with a 120 point lead (!) and are also six time Student Nationals champions. We also won the BSTF Club of the Year Award in 2022. Alongside these achievements we have also dominated the UCL-KCL Taekwondo Varsity Series Competition for 5 years running. 

We also provide plenty of volunteering opportunities for our members with our Kickstart initiative providing taekwondo training to underprivileged youth, winning Volunteering Club of the Year 2020. We host regular socials with both non-alcoholic and alcoholic options. Some notable socials from last year were our murder mystery social, our spicy noodle challenge and our Christmas party. Our membership includes all sessions and competitions (including travel and entry fees, but not including overnight stays) so you don't need to worry about paying any additional fees!
